ASN Kidney News—the kidney community's leading newsmagazine— invites you to apply to be a KN Editorial Fellow.

Who can apply? Fellows entering their second, third, or fourth year of fellowship in nephrology with an interest in clinical nephrology, transplantation, basic research (physiology, pharmacology, or pathophysiology), or clinical research (observational research and clinical trials).

ASN Kidney News embraces diversity and equal opportunity. We are committed to building an inclusive culture that represents the diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and skills of the communities we serve globally.

How long is the appointment? Two years.

What are the responsibilities? Editorial Fellows participate in all ASN Kidney News editorial processes, including reviewing articles, developing the Fellows First column, and identifying topics for invited articles and special issues. Trainees will participate in ASN Kidney News editorial calls and will be encouraged to contribute, as appropriate, to discussions of KN strategy and invited papers. The time commitment is at least one hour per week for soliciting and editing articles and communicating with authors and KN editorial staff.

First-year participants will be provided with a series of training sessions to ensure their familiarity with editorial processes. Periodic “trainee only” meetings with ASN Kidney News senior leadership will be held to discuss specific topics in the editorial process.

Fellows will be assigned to a specific editor who will oversee their progress. They will work closely with the assigned mentor and the Editor-in-Chief.

What's the deadline? October 30, 2022. The fellowship will begin January 1, 2023.

How do I apply? Interested applicants are invited to provide the following:

  • A brief bio

  • A detailed CV

  • A commitment and recommendation letter from Division Chief or Program Director of fellowship specifying how you are suited for the position

  • A 200- to 300-word short article on the topic “Training in Nephrology 2023: What can be changed?” One original figure and/or a visual abstract may be included. No co-authors are allowed.
